I like Starlight Glimmer. Her design is like they mashed up Twilight and Rarity.
The background might feel simplistic but I struggled with it a lot more than I should admit. Big props to my friend for helping me decide on what to do with it.
New print right before EFNW?
I like this artwork, even though I can't stand Starlight Glimmer.
I'm not a super fan of it. After I finished this image I saw her new look and it kinda killed my love for her design a bit.
It also has caused me a bit of debate as I want to turn her into a button, but, do I do the MAKE ALL EQUAL version? Or the new hairdo version?
I could do both but I'd much rather just do the most modern rendition if possible.
Sorry for the ramble.
I did find her new mane to be a little too similar to already existing designs like Rarity's or Trixie's. But at the same time I thought the old design made her look kinda old (in the beginning I thought she was around the same age as Twilight's parents!) and changing it does make sense from a story perspective.
So all in all, I don't mind it. I think either version would work as a button, which one would just be a matter of artistic choice.
